Sam wins big at Queensland Tennis Awards
Sam Stosur won the Ashley Cooper Medal at the Queensland Tennis Awards over the weekend, beating fellow nominees Ajla Tomljanovic and John Millman for the honour.
The medal is awarded to the athlete of the year and recognised Stosur for her two WTA titles – in Strasbourg and Bad Gastein – in 2015 and yet another top 25 season.
She also reached the second week of the US Open, the third round at Roland Garros and Wimbledon, and semifinals in Washington DC and Hong Kong.
It was Stosur’s fourth Ashley Cooper Medal.
The Queensland Tennis Awards, staged at Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on 7 November, honour the performances, achievements and contributions within Queensland tennis throughout the year.
